These fun, colorful, mind-building riddles are available as books called Can You Find Me? and as software called Riddle Rabbit™. Both the books and software use the same riddles and introduce young minds to critical thinking and organized analysis. To solve the riddles, students practice:
• Identifying Similarities and Differences
• Forming/Following Sequences and Patterns
• Classifying Objects and Groups
• Identifying/Interpreting Analogies
The riddles also teach the following concepts found in most state and national standards:
Math—counting, shape and number recognition, recognizing and completing patterns, spatial position, more/less/equal, ordinal numbers (first, third, etc.), part/whole measurement
Reading Readiness—letter recognition, rhyming words, letter-sound association, letter sequence, sight words, directionality
Science—animal attributes, weather/seasons, senses, body parts, plants/plant growth, force/motion
Social Studies—family, community helpers, health and safety, identifying locations
Each riddle requires identification of two or more clues to deduce the answer. Activities may be enhanced by teaching additional information about the animals, objects, shapes, letters, and numbers used in the riddles. Can You Find Me? books include answers and a chart of the skills developed in each activity.
The Riddle Rabbit™ software reads the riddles to students, explains wrong answers, and keeps track of student scoring. Students can play independently or with a parent or teacher for maximum benefit. Children love this software and you'll love what the software does for your children!
